Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to use a realtor or broker?
If you are buying property in Costa Rica, you should always solicit the services of a reputable and well-respected real estate company. There are many "Street Realtors," as well as taxi drivers, bar-tenders, receptionists, tour operators, etc., who are more than willing to show properties seeking a sales commission, yet lack the resources and knowledge necessary to provide you with information critical to complete a legal and successful transaction.
Do not think you will get it cheaper by using anybody else who is helping you with the purchase. It is like an unwritten law in Costa Rica that everybody has the right to ask a commission by just bringing Buyer and Seller together.
The services of a professional real estate company can be invaluable when you are buying property in Costa Rica, both during and after the purchase. Choosing the right agent will help you to build your knowledge of the area and compare values of properties. ABC Real Estate will provide the experience and expertise to answer all your questions.
